Just booked a fantastic holiday through Elaine Shillcock @ Elaines Escapes. Wow is all that I can say. If you want absolutely everything sorted for you get in touch. She's got us VIP treatment for the whole holiday and it's a fantastic price.

We've just got back from a superb break away organised by Elaine Shillcock - an all-inclusive week with a Jet2 package in Side, Turkey in an incredible hotel called Acanthus Cennet Barut Collection at a fantastic price. Elaine really had understood our explicit needs i.e. that we wanted a mainly adults only hotel, somewhere warm and all inclusive; but had also understood things about what I like without me even saying i.e. sumptious food, great cocktails, a luscious spa, a great spot to go and see some local history and friendly hotel cats. I feel like Elaine really understood what we were looking to get out of our break away and found a place perfect for that in our budget! Thanks Elaine Shillcock

Elaine was super helpful arranging our recent holiday to Morocco. We came to her having already done lots of browsing and with the dates and hotel in mind that we wanted. Despite this she went out of her way to make sure we got value for money and took the time to point out cheaper dates either side of these dates and better offers she could make available to us.

Service was second to none and I'll definitely carry on recommending Elaine's Escapes to friends and family.
I've heard nothing but glowing reviews from the friends I've referred her way so far even helping one of my friends book a dream honeymoon for next year.

It was reassuring too that as well as the great service from Elaine herself that there's a whole team at Not Just Travel who also call to check all is in place and answer any questions you might have before you jet off into the sunshine.

Elaine found us a fantastic holiday for next summer which is absolutely perfect in every way. She offered us sound advice and managed to get everything within our specified budget. Thanks for everything Elaine. We’d never have found such a great holiday without you.

Elaine was very patient with us while we made up our minds what we wanted and had a no hassle approach we really appreciate! she got us a great discount on our the the big tour operators for our Asia adventure in March and it's been smooth sailing getting it booked thanks to Elaine.

Elaine has always found exactly what we want. We had our honeymoon booked through Elaines Escapes in May 2019 and now were going to Turkey in Oct. in May we went to Crete (Rethmynon) it was absolutely amazing. Definitely would reccomend 😎😍

Thank you Elaine for all your help and support in booking our recent trip. I lost count of the number of times I messaged her with questions and she always responded quickly and with plenty of options.

I thoroughly recommend you contact Elaine when you are booking a trip whether it be business or pleasure.

I have recently been using Elaine to organise little weekend breaks away and will be using her for upcoming holidays. Elaine is a diamond. She takes the time and effort to find destinations and experiences tailored to you and saving you money at the same time. It’s like having your very own personal travel agent.

Best Customer Service You Can Get

Mohammed (23rd Oct 2018)

In the past year I've been fortunate to travel to Beijing and Hong Kong as part of my work. My former colleague Elaine Shillcock set up as a travel planner this year and I found her fantastic in making these trips happen.

I was able to giver her my requirements for myself and my team and she solved them, even with the normal changes to plans that happen.

She's not asked for a recommendation but if you are planning a family or business trip, I'd totally recommend. 

Pete (04th Oct 2018)

We have just booked our dream holiday with Elaine's Escapes. Elaine and her contacts listened to everything we wanted, and tailor made a holiday that was honestly our perfect trip. Other travel companies did not come close to our requests.

As well as being competitively priced, Elaine went above and beyond to make the process easy and nothing was too much trouble. We are so excited about our holiday, and I will definitely be recommending Elaine to my friends and family.

I cannot recommend her highly enough

Gorgeous place, bargain price, stress-free booking! 

Siobhan Celia Sweeney (04th Jul 2018)

What a fantastic bespoke service for arranging life changing experiences. Elaine helped to organise an adventure across America earlier this year for me and has now just helped book a tour of south east Asia and Australia for me and my boyfriend for the next 6 months.

Whether you are looking for a short break or a longer term adventure, you are sure to get a trip of lifetime that is totally bespoke to you.

Highly recommended!!
